Good news! Guangdong residents who hold an ID card issued by the Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department can now use an electronic ID card to check in all three-star hotels and above within the province and hopefully all hotels by the end of this year. The electronic ID card is also expected to become effective in most relevant social departments in the near future. It is invalid when the physical one expires or is cancelled.

How to get an electronic ID card?

Method One: Alipay

Open your Alipay app and click on “Pocket” in the red box.

Click “Add the Certificates” in the red box.

Click “Electronic ID Card” in the red box.

Click “I agree with the terms” in the red box to start the facial recognition.


Click “Finish” after the facial recognition process is successful.

Get your electronic ID card.
Method Two: Wechat

Scan the QR code to enter the “Yue Sheng Shi” wechat mini program.
Log in the “Yue Sheng Shi” via facial recognition.

Click “All Certificates” in the red box.
Click “Electronic ID Card” in the red box.
Click “Authorize the Connection” and get your electronic ID card.
For people who don’t have a registered permanent residence in Guangdong province, the Provincial Public Security Department also has launched an electronic residence permit in the “Yue Sheng Shi” wechat mini program. Foreigners can use electronic residence permits to check into hotels above the three-star level in Guangdong as of November 5.
